Action Code Interpretation:

An application that proposes a food use.  Additional food use includes a proposed food use of any U. S. registered active ingredient for which there currently is an approved food use. The use may require the establishment of a tolerance, the increase in, or modification of a tolerance under section 408 of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA).  The application may need to include a petition to establish a tolerance for all food commodities covered by the pending application(s).  Refer to the definition of a “food use” for the uses subject to this category. A different pattern of use that significantly changes or increases exposure such as a dosage rate increase or different method of application will result in the application being treated as a new use.
The fee applies to each additional new food use requested in the application.

Examples include: 

  • Pre and post harvest use on crops (other than agricultural fungicides and aquatic herbicides, which are handled as conventional pesticides)
  • Animal drinking water treatment
  • Process water treatment for post harvest use (field washing of raw agricultural commodities)
  • Treatment of permanent or semi-permanent food contact surfaces (sanitizers and disinfectants).  
  • Use in the product of food contact articles, other than food packaging with an intended ongoing effect in the finished article, including the articles surface or in food that may contact the article)
  • Food handling storage establishment premises and equipment (e.g. eating establishments, meat processing equipment, food handling  equipment)
  • Ethanol production (treatment of empty fermentation tank) (check with the Agency prior to submission of an application)
  • Aquatic area application (e.g., lakes, ponds, reservoirs, irrigation systems)(other than aquatic herbicides which are handled as conventional pesticides)
